Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Final Rule and Guidance Released

August 24, 2016

The long-awaited FAR final rule and Department of Labor final guidance implementing the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” executive order will be published in the Federal Register on August 25 (available here and here), and the underlying executive order has been revised (available here) with purportedly “technical” corrections. In response to industry feedback, the FAR Council and DOL have made significant changes regarding the applicability and implementation of the rule and the scope of the reporting requirements, and C&M attorneys will provide in-depth analysis in a forthcoming blog post and in a webcast to discuss its implications.
